The mostly cloudy pattern will stick around today with a few random sprinkles possible for some. Highs will remain slightly below average as well with most in the mid-upper 40s. It will remain rather quiet overnight too with lingering clouds, dry conditions and near freezing temperatures.

A weak disturbance will slowly slide eastward into Tennessee during the day Monday and a light rain/snow mix will develop for some areas (coverage around 30%). Temperatures during the afternoon will reach the upper 30s, so no travel problems are anticipated during the daylight hours. As colder air filters in Monday night into Tuesday, the light mix will change over to snow for some areas of East Tennessee.

The more likely areas to see the snow would be along and south of the I-40 corridor where some accumulations do look possible. This batch of light snow wraps up during the day Tuesday as the surface low responsible for it travels into the Carolinas. The thing I will be watching will be the "upper" level part of this storm which will be hanging back across Northern Georgia by late Tuesday.

It appears as though the upper level feature will drift across Western North Carolina into Virginia on Wednesday, which would mean the opportunity for additional accumulating snow for a wider portion viewing area during the day on Wednesday. My confidence is higher with the late Monday-Tuesday event and less so for the Wednesday feature, but we will continue to pour over the forecast information and keep you updated.
